Apatheist: You mean like when an MLS match starts in the second quarter of an NFL game and ends when the NFL game is late in the 3rd quarter? That slow?

Blink: Played a bit of sand soccer. It's an incredibly great way to break toes.
The_Sponge: Sand soccer does not usually end well.[i130.photobucket.com image 356x367]

That slow?I never realized how much milling about there was in football until I got an exercise bike for some low impact cardio work during the winter. The exercise bike is boring as hell so I'd listen to music through headphones with the TV on. I turn the football game on and there'd be a play followed by three replays then another play followed by three replays. Apparently every play in football no matter how mundane -- a three yard run up the middle -- involves some form of greatness that requires three replays. With the sound down though, it all looked the same. When someone finally did score, the touchdown-->commercial-->point after-->commercial-->kickoff-->commercial-->play from scrimmage sequence was ridiculous. Watching football with no sound was an eyeopener. The sport is really just a bunch of dead time. I don't think I've been able to sit through an entire quarter with sound on since I realized how much standing around there is in football.With the TV sound down soccer is the most watchable; it is none stop action. Hockey is pretty good too. College basketball moves pretty quick too. Baseball is tough to watch without sound but at least the game moves forward once you're back from commercials (baseball has a lot of commercials). Football is unwatchable.
